. there was severe damage done to the ocean city fishing pier. >> we heard about how bad it was going to be and i guess we were lucky not to get it as bad as other places. it is just weird, looking at it. there is sand where san should not be. >> there was a lot of flooding. we looked out on the boardwalk, where city crews were assessing the damage. mostly sand and debris, and after the rumors were confirmed, a portion of the fishing pier was washed away. you can see the pylon's less standing in the water. we headed up coastal highway where there was evidence of extensive flooding on the bayside. some water still standing and other areas where it had washed back, debris was everywhere. utility crews got a jump early, but according to del mar representative power, there are no reported outages in ocean city. when damage was everywhere you look, from signs blown out, a construction signed in dover, and a son of a hotel completely blown off. beach erosion was expensive, too. the 9-13 foot waves eroded away a good portion of the dune system of the city that was put in place to protect properties. mor
